With reference to keeping the safety of a pedestrian in mind, the authorities are responsible for preventing the dangers a pedestrian may face on the streets. For one, it is the pedestrian’s right to have zebra-crossings available at various junctions so as to regulate the traffic and make allowances for pedestrians. At the same time, it is a pedestrian’s responsibility to follow the rules at a zebra-crossing so as to help keep everyone safe. The construction of pedestrian bridges at major roads and junctions should be built to provide a safe crossing for people.
